The Macro Twin Lite gives close-up and macro enthusiasts a different lighting option. It comes with a guide number of 26 that features full E-TTL control and E-TTL features including FEL, Hi-speed sync, and FEB. Capable of minimum light emission as low as 1/512, the light provides users with flexibility and control over the shadows and highlights during macro photography of small subjects such as insects, flowers and tiny trinkets - a boost to artistic expression. The two separate flash heads can be swiveled around the lens, tilted in different angles, aimed separately and even removed from their holder and mounted off-camera.
The flash recycle time is approximately 5.5 seconds. With the quick mode, it is reduced to approximately 3.3 seconds - all the better for capturing fleeting shutter opportunities. The flash unit comes bundled with a dedicated diffuser adapter that can soften the light from the flash for a more natural-looking output.
